    Sunlight photos with AE in the middle. Don't have my Chukkas at the office today. The coloring is slightly different, but so do batches of cordovan. I say they are darn close to cigar.

    See Ya,

    I think that they look reasonably close. I may get the belt. I assume that those are Park Avenues in their Brown Shell? I like them, but I really like the natural siding on the Alden Straight Tips alot.

    I am also thinking of trying to get an AE Walnut Shell Belt. I think that it may be a reasonable match (not perfect) for Ravello. I don't see myself finding a Ravello belt anytime soon, so that may be a good compromise. I do have a pair of AE Walnut Shell Strands that would obviously match.

    Have a great Friday all!

    Walnut shell no longer exists...They may have enough for a belt, not sure? But I know for a fact they dont have enough for a pair of shoes.

    yes, from my experience they fit pretty similar for the ball to heel. I would personally really like to try my same length on the Barrie but out one width. I stratal the line between an 8D and 7.5E on the Barrie. An 8.5D fits me Ok on the Grant( 8D is waaay to tight) but I would be curious to try an 8E and see if that fits me better

    Hey guys,

    I apologize if this is the wrong thread to post this is, but is there any way to get a pair of Alden Longwing Bluchers that is not in Cordovan No 8 or Black? (I'm looking for the shell cordovans, not the CXL or waxed leather types)

    I'm not a big fan of either of those colors, and it seems impossible to get shell in the cigar, the ravello or the whiskey. I've called and checked with Alden in NYC, SF, and Epaulet and Leffot, but no one seems to have it.

    If these are rare colors, how often approximately are they made? Is it like a yearly thing, or kinda random?

    Thanks

    Have you checked J.Crew? I was just at the 5th Avenue store in NYC and they have the Tabacco Long wing bluchers in a few sizes

    Mike-I have the Alden straight tips in cigar and I love them! The AE's were ordered about 12 weeks ago...before I found a bunch of Aldens in Cigar and Whiskey. However...I like the AE's too, just not as much as my Aldens. A lot of difference in price between AE and Aldens to consider. However...I threw caution to the wind when the Alden shell bug bit me! I have not posted photos of them yet, but I will. I have 2 Alden Cigar belts and 1 AE belt in brown and I feel they are a great match. None of my Alden belts exactly match the respective shoes either in Cigar or Whiskey.

    See Ya,
    Steve
